Google Wear OS Gets a Refreshed Look

Wear OS is the Google’s smart watch operating system which was formerly known as Android Wear is all set to get a refreshed look today. According to Google the main idea is to give faster access to information along with proactive support. Wear OS, being in line with Google Fit redesign, also provides the users the same kind of health coaching as the Android app.

Practically, this means you can now swipe through multiple notifications at once. Earlier, users had to go from one notification card to another, which was although minute but full of hassle. Similar to earlier, you bring the new notifications feed by swiping up. Tap the notification to bring up the options, if you want to reply or take any other action.

Google Now replacement will also be incorporated in Wear OS. By swiping right, Google Assistant will appear which can show up your flight schedule, all significant notifications or scheduled events, and weather updates. Similar to other assistant based interfaces, Google will explore and use this area to help the users to discover other Assistant features like setting timers.

It doesn’t come as a surprise for Google Fit that Wear OS is sticking to the similar old circular design with Move Minutes and Hear points as the Android app. The design looks perfect on a round Wear OS watch.

This is certainly not the major break from the older versions. Quality of life improvements make it easier to use Wear OS.
